Duglin's Tree truck. I love blown glass ornaments.
Hmmm....wonder who this ornament belongs to?
Here are some ornaments that have been given to me or purchased over the years to commemorate certain events in our families lives.
We purchased a sandcastle to mark our first family vacation in 2007 to Destin.
My mom also gives each of kids and Da hubby and I ornaments every year and the two above are a couple of my favorites she has blessed us with.
This ornament is practically as old as I am. My Meema and Peepa had purchased these types of ornaments for all the grandchildren and had them on their tree. After Meema passed, Peepa gave them to each of us. It is priceless to me.
I also get one of these every year for the family:
Here are a couple or ornaments I have just for fun.
I got this at our church's Worship Team Christmas party. I love the toe on it and of course it's *S*P*A*R*K*L*Y* !! Glitter makes me happy. All it needs is a heel and it would be perfect!!
We hand and foot printed the kids every year from their 1st to their 3rd Christmas's. I ADORE these. If there is ever a fire, it will be one of the things I will grab on my way out the window! The one below is Perri's footprint when she was 5 weeks old. she had the tiniest of toesies! (She has long made up for it since!) The print itself is only 2 1/4 inches long. After her stay in the NICU, it was the first place we took her in public.
One more note. Do you remember this picture from my past post of when the tree fell?
Out of these, I mourned this one the most. It was Duglin's first Christmas ornament. (Sniffle.)
I am happy to report that super-glue is going to be added to my "Thankful For" list next year.
So, I guess if I had to name a theme of my tree it would be Unforgettable Memories. Definitely not something you would see in a magazine, but perfect for us! PLEEEEEEASE comment - I would love to come visit your blog and see your ideas, too!
